Redmi Note 9 Pro with SD 720G is way more efficient than Mediatek G90T and has a similar performance. So it gives much longer screen on time and more developer options as well.


It’s just I don’t like two things about Note 9 Pro. Side mounted finger print scanner and LCD display when Realme XT and Realme X2 giving you in 15000/17000 respectively.

The successor seems to have a degraded camera and a degraded Snapdragon processor. I am okay with Redmi Note 8 Pro.
